"Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down"
Self-esteem refers to your realistic and appreciative opinion of yourself; it is how you feel about yourself and your self-esteem can have an effect on your mental health, negatively or positively. With social media continuously being on the rise and the unrealistic expectations that society puts on people, we can find our own self-esteem being negatively impacted; society can misconstrue your own acceptance and appreciation by painting a picture of what they perceive as “perfect.” About 60% of social media users reported that it has impacted their self-esteem in a negative way. Having low self-esteem can not only impact your own mental health, but it can also impact your work and school productivity as well as your own social life. At Anchor Counseling, we help to address the emotions underlying low self-esteem and help you develop a healthy relationship with yourself and create a balanced life filled with love and happiness.
